"Jeff Purtle has done an unbelievable favour to all the trumpeters in the world by preserving the teaching of great masters as Claude Gordon and Herbert L. Clarke and deciding to share it with us through his interesting website. Thanks to Jeff for his high contribution to the trumpeters' community".

Jeff Purtle is the person best to carry on the work that Claude Gordon had done in his time. Jeff knows much more about Claude than anyone I know. Lucky is the trumpet player who is able to access so much information and music via your web site.

One of the joys I experienced while playing Daddy Warbucks in 'Annie' at the Peace Center in Greenville, SC in September, 2013 was hearing the crisp, warm sound of the trumpet solo at the beginning of the overture every night.    Jeff Purtle did an outstanding job in every number and helped make a relatively small orchestra sound much bigger than it actually was.    Jeff is one terrific trumpet player!
